Your health care team is a key partner in your seizure treatment. The Epilepsy Foundation is also your ally. You can turn to us for help and support while living with epilepsy. As with any health condition, knowing what to expect and how to cope is important. Knowing about your community resources and how to use them well is important, too.
This Community Passport provides you with an overview of resources and information about how best to live your life – including the parts of your life involving work, family, and social activities. The Passport will also guide you to additional community allies – providing services and programs – to help you live well with epilepsy.
Your Local Epilepsy Foundation
Most Epilepsy Foundation affiliates provide information and referral assistance; maintain individual and family support services; serve as advocates for the rights of those with epilepsy; and offer community-based education to employers, emergency first-responders, school nurses, and other allied health professionals. Many affiliates can be accessed through toll-free lines.Select your state or enter your zip code below to find the Epilepsy Foundation in your community.
